When a list of two hundred email addresses and passwords supposedly from the GAME website were dumped onto Pastebin, the worst had to be feared that the GAME website security had been breached. However, it seems not according a statement put out by the company.
According to a statement issued by the company, they say;
At GAME we guard our customers’ details very carefully.
We have thoroughly investigated the hacking claims made today by the website Pastebin, and can confirm that they are entirely false. The published email addresses are not registered users of GAME.co.uk, and there has been no breach of our database security.
We would like to assure all our customers that their details are well protected, and advise anyone who has any questions to contact our customer services team via the website, our Facebook page or Twitter account.
Of course, we have no reason to think that GAME are not wrong here, but it is still strange.
